Those are just a few of the words that I would use to describe the display of hatred that took place over the weekend in Charlottesville. To say I was surprised, though, would be inaccurate. Last week, before hundreds of white men and women showed up in Charlottesville to march and intimidate people simply because of their skin color, I was well aware that racism still pumped through the veins of our nation. I’ve witnessed it, I’ve lived among it, and sadly, I’ve been far too apathetic about it.
20 Life Lessons I Learned From My Two Year OldWhen I became a dad a little over two years ago I knew I had a lot to learn about becoming a parent. What I didn’t expect is just how much my son would teach me about life in general. I’m sure I have many more lessons to learn in the years ahead, but in the mean time I thought I would share this selection of 20:2. Our emotions can get us into serious trouble. 3. There’s no such thing as too many hugs. 4. Adults don’t play outside nearly enough. 5.
Growing up my nightly bedtime routine consisted of pulling down my black leather King James Bible and turning to Psalm 23—I had heard that Psalm recited at several funerals, so I knew it had to be important. I eventually memorized it, but the truth of it never seeped into my heart. I would pull out my Bible every night and then somehow manage to miss the entire point. In short, I was reading the Bible wrong. You might not think there is a wrong way to do something that’s so right, but there is.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
